Veep is a forthcoming 2012 HBO television comedy series set in the office of a fictional U.S. vice-president. The programme is created by Armando Iannucci, based upon the style of the BBC television sitcom The Thick of It. After a 2011 pilot written by Iannucci and Simon Blackwell, the series was commissioned for a full season.[1] The series is set to premiere on April 22, 2012.

Centers on former Senator Selina Meyer who finds being Vice President of the United States is nothing like she expected and everything everyone ever warned about.

Former senator Selina Meyer was a rising star in her party, a charismatic leader with White House potential. Then she became Vice President. Julia Louis-Dreyfus stars in Veep, a new HBO comedy series created by Armando Iannucci that follows the whirlwind day-to-day existence of the Vice President as she puts out political fires, juggles a busy public schedule and demanding private life, and defends the president’s interests, even as she tries to improve her dysfunctional relationship with the chief executive. The cast also includes Tony Hale, Anna Chlumsky, Matt Walsh, Reid Scott, Timothy C. Simons and Sufe Bradshaw.

Finally saw it, i think it works and thats due to JLD - she doesnt over do it, and is spot on, and i think each character works and so on

Looking forward to next week

I also liked the bit in the episode before where Mike was just talking away whilst Selina wasnt even in her chair, and then she screamed Mike from the other doorway :lol:

Congrats to Julia on her Emmy

Anna looked great

Currently watching this phenomenal show.
I love Selina, she's so douchy in a classy way, so relatable and lovely.
Although I was rooting for Poehlerbear at the Emmys, I really think that Julia deserved that award.
